“P1 has asked to do some baking and go to a soft play area this half term”

Half term has definitely crept up on us. We were invited into the school to watch P1s class assembly. Since joining this school and especially since starting Year 1, she has completely blossomed. Every time we watch her at school she seems to grow with confidence. P1s assembly was about penguins and the South Pole. This is what she’s been …

Siblings February 2015

It’s only the second month of our Siblings journey and I’m already struggling to find positions to get the girls in together. I’ve heard the saying “never work with children or animals” and my goodness it’s so true! We’ve recently changed their bedroom slightly, giving them space to play and move around. Removing the wardrobe seems to have made things …

“It was also P3s first time swimming”

This morning we went straight from the school run to the swimming pool. P1 swims every Tuesday morning with her school yet we are shamefully a family that doesn’t really go swimming together. I can’t remember the last time I saw P1 swim but I do remember the last time we took P2. P3 was in my tummy and I …

To My Princess 2 – 2 Years

To my Princess 2, I’ve been a little emotional this month as we’ve counted down the days until your 2nd birthday. These two years have gone ridiculously quick but it feels like such a long time ago that you were that podgy little baby at the hospital. You have such an amazing character. You’ve always been so hilarious in the …

To My Princess 3 – 4 Months

To my Princess 3, It seems to be flying by! I need to apologise to you. This month we’ve found out that you have a tongue tie and its left me feeling very guilty and upset that we didn’t even check. Nobody did. Even when you were struggling to gain weight! We’ve been referred to the hospital next month for …

“I want to cherish everything”

When your first baby comes along, the newborn bubble that we plop ourselves comfortably in lasts forever. There’s no rush to get out the house. The 6 week marker comes and goes. You realise you haven’t showered in three or four days, you certainly only ventured out of bed for the loo or to grab food. This was sort of …

Potty Training P2

I toilet trained P1 when she was 3 years and 3 months old. It took just two weeks for her to be completely dry during the day, and from the start of toilet training to this date P1 has never wet herself during the night. Touch wood! I was lucky, she was older and able to completely communicate with me. …

“She has a tongue-tie”

I’m 99% sure that P3 is teething. She’s suddenly become a dribbling wreck and is quite partial to a bit of finger munching… My fingers and hers. Whilst on a little session of chewing my finger I felt something familiar. A tongue-tie just like mine. Obviously, I’m no doctor but it played on my mind a bit. I’ve lived with …

The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster

Somewhere, hiding away in a dark corner of my tiny little house lurks The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster. As a Mum of three I’ve had plenty of experience. There’s three things I’ve found about parenting that are unavoidable. I blame the The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster. It has to be! Right let’s tackle the dummy situation first. The amount of money we must have …

“At first I thought it may be because she’s struggling”

There’s so much going on in P1s life and I find it difficult to stay on board with it all. The other two take up so much of my time that I guilty sort of forget. I forget that she’s not an average little girl. This year has already seen some changes for P1 at school. They’ve started swimming lessons …

“The first argument of the day was about some play food”

My alarm went at 7:45am. This was the third alarm for this morning and so I knew it was time to push my tired body out of bed and get ready for the school run. P2 woke up and immediately wanted a cuddle, I made sure she took off her nappy and went on the potty first. P1 however was …

“We created our first Friday Movie Night!”

There’s an enormous community that comes with being a blogger. I spend a lot of time reading other blogs via the Bloglovin’ app. I tend to follow parent bloggers because I can really relate to them. It also gives me an insight to how other people live or parent and I’m guilty of comparing. Then Molly at A Mother’s Always …
